Judges Comments
Clay : The shape of the vessel is terrific, and really shows off the pattern, but precise geometric patterns requires precise execution.
Jacques : GREAT form! Good lines and shows wonderful volume! Texture is a bit coarse for the elegance of the form.... Good proportions and a nice small foot, Yeah!
John : The piece seems nicely done, but the decoration lacks the finesse of it's source of inspiration.
